Join us to celebrate the publication of W. A. Dwiggins: A Life in Design, a comprehensive illustrated biography of the innovative type designer, illustrator, and lettering artist William Addison Dwiggins.

Meet the author Bruce Kennett, who will sign books and give a short presentation on the Society of Calligraphers, a fictitious organization with no members and only two officers (Secretary W. A. Dwiggins and President Hermann Püterschein, one of Dwiggins's pseudonyms).

Beverages and small bites will be served. Standard editions of the book and Dwiggins rarities will be available for sale.

Dwiggins rarities for sale at tonight’s publication party.
